israel and gaza. today, the u.s. state department expressed concern over the recent developments saying quote, one of the aspirations o f the egyptian revolution was to ensure power would not be overly concentrated in the hands of any one person or institution. he was elected in june with nearly 52% of the vote, but thousands are calling for his removal today as they stormed the headquarters of one of his chief support groups. the crowd then marched on to tahrir square, chanting birth of a new pharaoh. let's get the latest on this situation with ian lee in cairo tonight. what's the situation right now? >> reporter: well, tom, it's 2:00 a.m. now in cairo. and the protests are still going on. we're still seeing clashes in and around tahrir square between the protesters and the police. we're seeing a range of things thrown back and forth. rocks, we've seen molotov cocktails, we've seen tear gas. there are reports of police shooting into the air to scare off protesters. this is a very intense scene we've seen. we haven't seen anything like this really since a year ago when we saw clashes, w
to normal as israel begins to ease border restrictions into gaza after a cease-fire agreement with hamas the other day and that ended eight days of cross border fighting which claimed the lives of 166 palestinians and six israeli civilians. as part of a truce brokered by egypt israel agreed to ease more restrictions of gaza border blockade after they first took over in 2007. >> no doubt the white house is watching the developments in egypt very closely as the timing of this sweeping power grab raises new questions. president morsi's move coming just a day after egypt helped broker a cease-fire between israel and hamas. molly henneberg is live in washington and molly, we heard that the state department put out a statement on this, but omits one thing which is what? >> his name, president morsi's name. instead the state department says the decisions and declarations in egypt quote, raised concerns for egyptians and the community. and assuring that power would not be overly concentrated in the hand of any one person or institution. but it does not call on president morsi directly to reverse
to that cease-fire over the border that president morsi actually helped broker between israel and hamas. palestinian leaders say israel has already violated the truce. its soldiers open fire today on a group of palestinians in a buffer zone near the gaza-israeli border. sarah seidner joining us from jerusalem. sarah, no one disputes that israelis soldiers opened fire, but israel and hamas have very different views about the eths that led up to that shooting. what is each side saying? >> well, the department of health there, the ministry in gaza, is saying that these were farmers, they were out, and ended up being fired upon, but the israeli military says that these were several groups of men coming up protesting, coming up to the border fence, trying to go over to the israeli side of the border. that the soldiers fired warning shots in the air initially. when those warnings were not heeded, they ened up shooting towards their legs. the government in gaza is saying that they had killed one person and that the israeli soldiers injured 25 people. the israeli military right now not confirmi
tonight. thank you. >> the two day old cease-fire between israel and gaza is mostly holding, all has not done smoothly. connor powell has the story from jerusalem. >> the fra gifragile cease-fire. and the border between israel and gaza and some were farmers wanted to get access to their land. and others the cease-fire agreements. after shouting verbal warnings to the crowds, israeli troops opened fire killing one pal al and wounding more than a dozen. and israel and hamas accused each other of violating the the cease-fire agreement so far both sides showed restraint. today the first time in two weeks, the tomorrow leader in gaza appeared in public and even he avoided the normal inflammatory language that acompanies most incidents. >> and i think for some people to try to go inside means something. >> neither side, it appears, wants to return to the violence of the past weeks. and hamas worked on a series of tunnels they used to move rockets in and out of gaza, giving credence to those who say it's just a temporary pause in the violence not the start to a long-term peace agreement. >>
and israel? >> no one knows for sure. but i think it will hold for a while. hamas got what they wanted, worldwide recognition. they have some restrictions removed from the blockade. they will be able to smuggle arms and hunitions -- munitions in as they have always done, despite the fact the egyptians are trying to do something about it. israeli defeated hamasalcy military capability, firing 1500 rockets and defeating 88% of those coming into population centers. so i think there is something there for erch. i think it will hold. the real winner is the iranian, as they are watching this unfold and influence in it. >> shannon: behind what is so much of what is happening there, general, thank you so much. >> good sigh you. >> shannon: fox news has confirmed that peter king will step down as the house homeland security committee. the republican representative has chaired that committee for 7 years. republicans have imposed a six-year limit for most committee chairs. king got a waiver and he is wrapping up list seventh year. it is not clear who will replace him in january of 2013. some spec
bogus items. syria used distraction of fighting between israel and palestinians to resupply government troops in syria. correspondent leland vittert has the evidence. >> bretevidence >> reporter: they have been firing off and appearing ready for battle. the western intelligence sources tell fox news the men are ire rainian revolutionary guard troops coming to help bashar assad in the syria long civil war. they have exploited the attention on syria to ramp up the flight. often sending ton of ammunition, weapon and equipment multiple times a week. they are flying via rocky air space. the u.s. put pressure on iraq. iraq is inspecting the planes but sources say it's done on the return flight. when the plane is empty to appease the u.s. keep the flight coming. 18 months since the civil war. deflection from the syrian army means that assad has less well-trained men. >> recent rebel takeover have robbed the soldiers of equipment. and the army is running low on ammunition. >> while diplomatic pressure from united states is the only thing to stop iran shipments via iraqi air space, in israel th
agreement between hamas and israel which may beer maybe not. maybe he did a great job. there are also arms being smuggled through egypt so maybe he got too much credit. >> he seized the day. his name is on top of all newspapers. here i am, i need to consolidate power this morning. >> charles krauthammer believes there is a connection between the praise that came from the united states and what president morsey has done now in egypt. >> i'm not surprised at all that the brotherhood is now essentially engaging in a cudahy that. the shamelessness and speed in which he did this the day after the agreement. i think the administration has to wonder whether the praise it gave which was fusive and excessive didn't give morsey the sense that he can can strike now because he has been elevated to a great world leader. he had to do the cease-fire because he needs the money and he wouldn't have had it otherwise. and also because egypt has never wanted to be dragged back into the palestine wars by the palestinians who want everybody to die on their behalf. >> he then went out and spoke to large crowds s
'd garnered worldwide praise for mediating a cease-fire between israel and hamas. today, he told a supportive crowd outside the presidential palace in cairo that granting himself sweeping powers was necessary to prevent figures from the old regime from halting progress. >> ( translated ): i haven't taken a decision to use it against anyone-- to go against anyone is something that i could never be associated with-- or announcing that i am biased towards anyone. however, i must put myself on a clear path that will lead to the achievement of a clear goal. >> brown: the president's backers insisted the decree would be in effect only until a new constitution is approved. >> ( translated ): yes, he might be a dictator for the time being or might have unprecedented power throughout this period of two months, but after that, these powers will be transferred to an elected parliament. >> brown: but tens of thousands of anti-morsi protesters rallied in tahrir square, the heart of last year's popular revolution that led to end of the regime of hosni mubarak. they threw rocks at riot police, who retaliate
-fire between israel and hamas. doesn't even settle with the truce and then morsi announces this decree essentially a huge power grab. what is the significance? >> reporter: well, suzanne, the significance is until a parliament is formed here in egypt, until a constitution is drafted, he is the most powerful man in egypt, and, technically, he can do whatever he wants without any apparent oversight. that's why he is being called egypt's new dictator. that's why you have thousands of protests taking place behind us in tahrir square. the protesters represent the opposing factions, the liberals, the secularists, women's rights groups, the youth groups. essentially, their position is that we're not going to talk to mr. morsi until he rescinds his decrees, and we spoke to one of his top advisors today, and he said he'll consider that, but first there needs to be a dialogue. let's take a listen to the advisor. >> what kind of concessions are you willing to make? >> this decision is up to the president. not for us. >> is it possible -- is it possible -- >> we are ready for our dialogue. >> are
, on the constitution and the attack on the judges right after he brokered the deal between israel and hamas. so he was already rending services in the international community and then asking for a license at home. it's really basically a page from the book of hosni mubarak. i think in washington, there is great uncertainty, what to do with the islamists in power. this is not just from this crisis of november 2b 22nd, this crisis of the last week behind us. this has been the case since the fall of the dictatorship of hosni mubarak, what to do with the islamists in egypt, what to do with the islamists in tunisia and what to do with the rise of the islamists in the region as a whole. >> over the weekend, senator john mccain said, our dollars will be directly related to the progress towards democracy. if you add up all the economic and military assistance the u.s. gives egypt every year, it's about $1.5 billion. should that be used as leverage to try to get egypt back on this democracy road? >> well, i usually have great deference to the opinions of senator mccain. i see things on national security th
role in the cease-fire between israel and hamas, but now is he the target of mass protests. they are denouncing president morsi as a dictator. all this for a new set of orders and declarations he made basically giving giving himself absolute power at least until egypt's constitution is finished. who exactly is the man behind all of this praise and protest? we've been learning so much more about him and seeing so much more of him as we've watched the talk of israel and gaza this week. let's bring in nadia belichick to talk a little bit more about mohammed mossey. he actually wasn't even his party's first choice, right? >> correct. he wasn't. morsi is not particularly charismatic. he has been called a dull technocrat and sometimes a spare tire. because of various technicalities as to who was eligible, he was one of the few who was eligible to run for president. >> he studied in the united states? i mean, we know a little bit about him, but not a whole lot. that's true? >> yes, correct. he got his doctorate many engineering from the university of southern california, although
israel is the culprit. what they really want to the know is who helped them? allen pizzey ramallah. >>> and former fbi assistant director joins us now. what do you make of this? >> this harkens back to the alexander case in london. the former kgb spy also poisoned with polonium 210. that was 2006. this was 2004. dropped in his tea by somebody he met at a hotel you and i have been to in the square. that also suggests if you look at the arafat case the amount of proximity you would have to have to do this in other words, there weren't half a dozen plo leaders or family member whose got sick when somebody poisoned a meal. if in fact this turns out to be a poisoning, it had to be somebody one on one who to cut this into this drink in a fair amount. >> i know polonium 210 used with alexander and suspected with yasser arafat. his body has been interred for years. what's the chances they'll find traces of that? >> the fbi, the guy who worked on the other case a shelf life of 138 days. a pound of it 138, a half pound of it. interred since 2004. a highly concentrated bu
or not egypt would have a role, maybe a cease-fire between hamas and israel. we did see that come to fry tuition. this week we're talking about something completely different, michael. what should the role of the united states be? and what have you heard about reports potentially of military coup, the military in egypt we supported so much over the years rising up against morsi? >> well, jenna, this is sort of back to the future because remember hosni mubarak wanted a deal with the united states got one for a long time, look he will be responsible player in the region but you ignore what he does inside of egypt. this is coming right on the heels of gaza. the last move morsi made was on the heels of a big terrorist attack in the sinai. he is hoping for a free pass from the united states and international community. ignore what i'm doing at home and concentrate on my role in the region. i think it is important we not do that. as for the military, jenna, you remember the supreme council of armed forces. nobody talks about them because morsi usurped the role they had in all. i'm not sure the
. i wouldn't call it credit for pressuring both israel and the egypt to get hamas to agree to the cease-fire. it is a very limited cease-fire. it won't last. it doesn't change the strategic environment and it clearly gave morsi the view that he would have a free hand domesticly to do what he has just done. melissa: i don't want to let you go without asking you i was struck by pictures exhuming yasser arafat questioning what he did of. what do you think of that? >> i don't think he died of polonium poisoning. only people that used that is soviets. i don't think they killed arafat. i think this is way pinning his death on somebody else. as happens in that part of the world it is not their responsibility but somebody else's. melissa: why now? >> an issue kicking around for quite some time i think circumstances led to it being this time. i don't attribute to any grander plan. i don't think it will fundamentally change the circumstance there is. melissa: ambassador, thanks for coming on. we appreciate it. lori: drop in the buckket. we know people with families more than $250,000
